To appreciate and understand the Love God has for you, you first have to see it as sheer insanity with its intensity and absolute madness with its uncompromising, unconditional nature all the while understanding that God above all knows there is absolutely Nothing He expects in return but for you to believe!
We will never know the depth of God’s Great and Amazing Love for us and living with the knowledge of its depth being beyond human comprehension IS living with the second Peace-Full Truth!
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:16-17
There is NO condemnation is Jesus! Ask the woman at the well, the woman caught in adultery, multiple tax collectors, whores, pimps, drug addicts and others that society long ago threw away and if they found Grace-Full Jesus they will all tell you this same Peace-Full Truth!
With this in mind you now know where every voice of dislike, self-hate, condemnation and painful thought about your past comes from – the devil greatest desire is to see you wallow in what God has LONG forgotten!
The non-Grace-Full or the head fake Grace will tell you or believe even without knowing it that God’s Love is good – BUT they are quick to let you “know” that you have to change, IF you really found Jesus you will change your wicked ways or SO that He will Love you, you must obey His commandments, act like they do and perform like a circus monkey – to which the Bible says something Astoundingly different!
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” Psalms 139:13
For years of my life, I fought parts of me that were created, knit together and formed by The God of All creation – the result was depression, suffering and scars I still carry and will to the day I see Him in Glory and I Praise God for that! It wasn’t until I could Thank Him and Praise Him for the “me” He made me to be that I began to get a small glimpse of His Great Love for me! This must be understood to grasp “The Peace Truths” in their entirety and to begin to get Grace and you will see why in the next two Truths.
I picture God as The Father running beside me as I ride my little red bike without the training wheels of the law for the first time. As the streamers on the end of the handles begin to fly because we have picked up speed and as I feel the coolness of the wind on my face and smile with accomplishment, I sometimes gently push other times not so gently push God away saying, “ok, I got this, let me go, let me ride all by myself Daddy!” To which God suggest differently but He lets me try it on my own, only to see me hit a pebble with the front tire and end up in a ditch. At this point He gently wipes off the wounds and says, “I am sorry you got hurt, I Love you, let’s try again!”
Find a quiet time and place where you can focus on His Love for you. It might mean doing this at work on a rough day in the bathroom stall just to check in on His Love and that is ok!
Breathe in and say:
“God Loves me”
Breathe out and say:
“Just as I am”
Rest and Peace will be yours the Truth is in your heart and not your head alone! Keep doing this meditation will it reaches your heart!
